The CW Pros

Great AppThis app is great. I don’t really have time to watch my shows on The CW, always working. So I come to this free app to watch all my CW shows. I’ve been watch channel 56 all my life, since the mid 80,s. And it is my favorite channel. It used to have all the good cartoons in the early times for kids and in the evening times, the dramas. Gilmore Girls, Smallville, Dawson’s Creek, Buffy, Angel, Supernatural, Fresh Prince, Tiny Toons, Anamaniacs, VR Troopers, Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Marvels Shield, Constantine, Charmed (old version), and so, so much more. I recently had the playback error and it made me stop watching for a bit, but I did write to the CW Support team and after a couple of days they fixed the problem. Haven’t been on to check to see if it works yet but I am confident that the problem has been solved. Many other apps would have you jump through hoops just to fix some problems and sometimes they never get fixed at all. But CW, in a timely manner, they went ahead and listened to the people who downloaded this fine app and fixed the problem. In conclusion, The CW app will always be my #1 app, my go to app, the best. To The CW Team, great work and keep it up. Not many support teams are great like you. I do appreciate all that you do. I don’t usually write review that much but I will express my love for The CW any way that I can. Thank You, X.XaaM3Version: 3.1.3

Why?So I recently downloaded the app today because my friend (who also loves Riverdale) told me about it. I opened the app and easily figured out how to work it. I would give the app five stars but because of the following reasons I can only give it four. 1: Only latest episodes?! I noticed that Riverdale and all the other shows only have the most recent five episodes. This makes me very upset because I finished season two on Netflix and I don’t have The CW on my tv. I was going to watch the full season three, but there is only episode 5-8. I really wish all of the episodes were there and personally can’t wait until Netflix has the full season three. 2: Only season 3?! Again like the last reason, the options of what episodes to watch is very limited. For someone who is new to The CW shows and doesn’t have it on their tv, I would tell to come to this app but when I noticed this I thought again. I feel a bit bad for giving this app four out of five stars but it is deserved. Netflix is a more reliable source than the channel’s own app. All I am trying to say is that, this app should have ALL the episodes for EACH season of all the shows on here. Thank you for reading and if you are one of the developers I hope you fix the app. Thank you.Vdisjbddhjxus:1Version: 3.0.15

The CW Cons

It is free butThere’s definitely issues but it’s a free streaming service so we can’t complain that much. Sometimes it’s becomes very blurry , commercials are very long, there’s no resume button so if you stop streaming and then go back you have to remember where you stopped or just rewatch the whole thing. Which is sometimes easier because otherwise you’ll watch like 6 minutes of commercials before you get back to your spot. All that I can deal with. most recently I’ve been having a new problem that’s never occurred before. I stream to my tv thru my chrome cast but now as soon as my phone screen locks, it completely kicks me off. Which is like two minutes. I can’t minimize the app because the same thing happens. I have to reconnect and start all over. Not an issue with the internet or chrome cast because Netflix/Hulu work just fine. This maybe started last week. I like a lot of the shows but trying to keep my phone screen active on the cw app screen for 50 minutes is a lot of effort for no reason really, even for a free app..JdkdhruepwsbdgeVersion: 3.1.6

Can somebody please fix the bugsI know it’s a common problem with this app for it to freeze when it goes from commercials back to the show, but I’ve been on the same episode for an hour an a half and I’m only halfway through. The commercial ends, it freezes, I exit, click play and then click continue and it starts me right back at the beginning of the same commercial section that I just watched, so now I’ve watched about 10 commercials, and then it freezes again, and I have to repeat it. I’ve tried it and watched the same exact commercial section at least 10 times now and it will not play the show. I can’t even try to drag the dot at the bottom to make it work after the ad bc as soon as I touch the screen all the controls disappear. it’s a nice idea for an app but it’s barely even functional and I’m about to throw my phone across the room. a company this big should be able to make 1 small app at least work somewhat correctly....Lighteningrod7Version: 3.1.16
